Name: Guru Scent for women
What I liked:

– not original nor remarkable
Last year, the famous Italian clothing brand Guru launched its first fragrance. Simply called Guru Scent, it is available in two versions, one for women and the other for men. Today, we’ll talk about the former.
Guru Scent for women is packaged in a fun pink bottle, which comes with a daisy-shaped charm attached to it. A cute image of a daisy is also printed on the label. If you’re not familiar with this brand, you may be excused for thinking the scent must smell like daisies, but nope. The daisy is only the logo of the brand.
The fragrance, instead, is a fruity oriental blend that smells almost gourmand at times. Designed for young and lively women, Guru scent revels its sweet personality from the very beginning. When you first spray it on, your nose is hit by a sugary but fresh burst of bergamot and tangerine
The citrusy notes soon disappears. They are replaced by vanilla, which ensures the scent remains sweet, almost candy-like, for its entire life span. At first, vanilla envelopes in its tender embrace a subtle accord of frangipani and sandalwood. They’re both very tame and really struggle to come to the surface and make their appearance distinctly noticeable.
Finally, the drydown. Vanilla is still there, its sweetness enriched by tonka bean. But this time, whiffs of musk prevent the scent from leaning too much towards the gourmand end of the spectrum. It’s a lovely composition, but hardly special. It’s the kind of scent you can find anywhere these days, but it hits the mark for its target audience. Guru wanted a flirty and sweet scent for teenage girls, which is exactly what its is.
It’s also one that won’t annoy those around them much. While the scent doesn’t stay too close to the skin, it’s not so strong as to announce its sweet presence for miles around it. Plus, it’s tenacious. After twelve hours of wear, it was still there, albeit, obviously, faded.
